Most of you might already have bought the entire collection of Itsy Bitsy chalk paints and already many posts have covered their usage, tips and tricks. So lets dive right into the post !
I made three different cards and for all the three cards, I have used chalk paint as background elements and “Happy bird-day” stamp for foreground element.
For the first one, I wanted to use the scallop circle die from Itsy Bitsy so, I made a simple brushstroke background on my base cardstock and placed the scallop circle die cut on it. I used a flat brush from Monte Marte gallery series for acrylic paints for making the strokes. I used frozen ice shade on a white background to represent sky. Then I used various floral elements with little birdie on the scallop die.
The flowers and leaves are clear stamps that I stamped with Memento Dewdrop ink pads and Itsy Bitsy pigment inks. I colored the little birdie with Camlin drawing inks. Once all the coloring were done, I fussy cut all of them and adhered everything together to the card base with double sided foam dots.
For the second card, I used a smaller size round brush from the same series to make tiny heart shapes with Itsy Bitsy chalk paint in pink ballet shade to fill the background area on a black cardstock.
I cut out a sentiment strip from Pretty in Pink pattern paper set and used it in the card along with a fussy cut little birdie.
For the third card, I used a geometric pattern stencil from Itsy Bitsy and covered the entire area of the card with chalk paint in the Fortune Cookie shade. I wanted to have a slightly raised look so I did not dilute the chalk paint while applying over the stencil.
For the sentiments, I cut out a small strip of cardstock and stamped “Hello” in lighter shade and highlighted the “Hello” with black ink. I adhered this strip to the base of the card with a double sided tape for 3D effect and placed a fussy cut little birdie.
